    Always get a kick out of strips mentioning Spokane, guys always make it sound a lot better then it actually is to live here. I mean it'd be awesome if it was a literal hellscape wasteland.

    Needs a gun and some floss to deal with the non-arcane (but still dangerous) threats of thugs and gingivitis, respectively.

    Catsby seems quite disconcerted by his current dilemma. Also, HAM!

    I would love an official breakdown of what all this equipment is for. Seems like we've got:

    -Demon-pacifying incense
    -Rune-warded imp cage (with pacified but still uneasy imp)
    -Vampire skewers
    -A pouch of soul-shards containing cherished memories (to distract the witch-hounds)
    -The Ritual Dagger of Kzk'Vl'zk
    -Coins for the Ferryman
    -Sleeping mandrake roots (all cried out?)
    -Tooth-cleaning stuff (always a good idea no matter where you're going)
    -Salt (Morton's brand Salt - 'When it rains, it pours!')
    -Duct tape (also a good idea to always have)

    Don't forget the skull and the (likely) Necrowombicon sticking out of the bag.

    Thank you for the correct words to Google to understand what was pictured on the salt. I thought it was a little mushroom dude and was very confused.

    Yup, Morton Salt is a very common brand in the US. They're the namesakes for the Morton Arboretum here in Chicago as well.
